Friendship Friday is here again and today I am sharing some of my vintage Thanksgiving postcards. They are all from the early 1900s and picture fat Turkeys and have a feeling of quiet times with family. Today it seems Thanksgiving is all about football and hurry off to shop at the stores.
I think I would rather sit back and have a nice dinner and visit with my family. I can shop another day.
Enjoy a peek into the past with my vintage postcards. They are up for sale on eBay along with a few others.

THURSDAY POSTCARD TRAVELS Piccadilly Circle London England

Today for Thursday Postcard Travels I am sharing another vintage postcard of London England. This one is of Piccadilly Circus which is a busy center of traffic at the intersection of Regent street, whence the wide Shaftesbury Avenue leads to the northeast.

The triangle in the center of the circus is occupied by a memorial fountain to Lord Shaftesbury, which was unveiled in 1893. It is adorned with eight plaques of scenes from the philanthropists life.

Thanks for visiting Thursdays Postcard Travels. Grace
